If You’ve Ever Known An American Soldier…

If you’ve ever known and cared about an American Soldier, I trust you’ll read this article about Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, a 47-year-old career Army officer facing the very-real prospect of spending 58 years in prison if convicted on sexual assault charges during his military trial that begins Oct. 12 Dec. 1 at Fort Campbell, Ky.

Because Our Warriors Deserve Justice
I use the words, “very-real prospect,” because I’m painfully familiar with how the military justice system works when those at the top of the Pentagon “food chain” feel unbelievable pressure from the likes of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), leaders of the politically-correct crowd in our nation’s capitol who ignore solid evidence about sexual assault in the military and instead demand prosecution of all who are accused — even if no evidence, eyewitnesses or other facts exist to warrant such prosecution.

Major Martin’s case is merely the latest in a long string of cases about which I’ve learned the details since releasing Three Days In August, my book that chronicles the wrongful prosecution, conviction and sentencing of Sgt. Kelly A. Stewart. Stewart was an Army Green Beret and combat veteran with a flawless record until a young German woman accused him of rape and kidnapping. Learn more about his case here and at ThreeDaysInAugust.com.

Though I can’t explain why so few Americans demonstrate any interest in the plight of falsely-accused Soldiers, I continue to share these stories about people who could just as easily be anyone’s father, husband, brother, son or uncle. I hope you will read and share them, too.

Below are links to the articles I’ve published during the past five days since I learned about Major Martin’s plight:

Army Soldier-Aviator Faces Possible 58-Year Sentence As Pentagon’s Sexual Assault Witch Hunt Seeks New Victim;

Army General Asked to Explain Decision to Prosecute; and

URGENT! Another Stellar Army Soldier-Aviator The Latest Victim of the Pentagon’s Sexual Assault Witch Hunt.

This graphic tells Maj. Christian "Kit" Martin's story in a nutshell. If justice doesn't prevail, he faces the possibility of spending 58 years in prison for something he did not do.

In addition to articles, I’ve published nearly a dozen video clips from an interview I did last week with Major Martin. Links to the clips appear below:

Major Martin Interview Clip #1 — He talks about his life before he signed on the dotted line;

Major Martin Interview Clip #2 — He describes how it felt to be receive a “top of the line” officer evaluation and be described as an officer of “unquestionable integrity” by Raymond T. Odierno, an officer who would go on to earn four stars and serve as chief of staff of the Army, the highest-ranking post in the Army;

Major Martin Interview Clip #3 — He talks about what it’s like to have had what many might consider a “dream job,” flying the world’s most-sophisticated attack helicopters and using weapons that “go boom”;

Major Martin Interview Clip #4 — He tells me about the early days of his relationship with the woman who would later accuse him of horrendous crimes;

Major Martin Interview Clip #5 — He describes the beginning of the battle he’s now fighting with the woman he thought was his legal wife and how it reached the boiling point soon after he was assigned to the vaunted 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky;

Major Martin Interview Clip #6 — He describes what happened in his life after the woman he considered his legal wife went to the FBI and told agents he was an international spy;

Major Martin Interview Clip #7 — He and I discuss a second set of allegations made against him by the woman he considered his legal wife;

Major Martin Interview Clip #8 in which he describes what happened to him after he filed a “Congressional,” essentially asking members of Congress to help him right a wrong being done to him by the Army;

Major Martin Interview Clip #9 in which he describes how the acting commanding general at Fort Campbell reacted to his subordinates telling him they didn’t think the charges against him should go forward;

Major Martin Interview Clip #10 in which he shares his opinion as to whether intense political pressure forced then-Brig. Gen. Mark Stammer to take action against him despite the fact that multiple investigations had cleared him; and

Major Martin Interview Clip #11 in which he reveals how the woman behind the accusations against him had a secret of her own revealed and is now facing charges stemming from it in both Tennessee and Kentucky.

Bob McCarty Weekly Recap: Aug. 30-Sept. 5, 2015

It’s a day late, but I think you’ll find this weekly recap worthwhile.

The week began Sunday with a repeat posting of a piece, Writer Reveals True Face of the Democratic Party, by guest writer Paul R. Hollrah and was followed by a series of posts about the case of Army Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, an elite Army Ranger and master Army aviator facing the possibility of spending 58 years in prison if convicted of bogus sexual assault charges during his upcoming military trial Dec. 1.

The series began with a summary post, Army Soldier-Aviator Faces Possible 58-Year Sentence As Pentagon’s Sexual Assault Witch Hunt Seeks New Victim, and was followed by six video clips from an interview I conducted with Major Martin Tuesday via Skype. Those interviews cover the following subtopics:

• In Video Clip 1, the 47-year-old veteran of three combat tours in Iraq talks about his life before he signed on the dotted line to join the Army Reserve as a private in 1986;

• In Video Clip 2, the elite Army Ranger and master Army aviator describes how it felt to be receive a “top of the line” officer evaluation and be described as an officer of “unquestionable integrity” by Raymond T. Odierno, an officer who would go on to earn four stars and serve as chief of staff of the Army, the highest-ranking post in the Army.

• In Video Clip 3, the Regular Army officer talks about what it’s like to have had what many might consider a “dream job” — flying the world’s most-sophisticated attack helicopters and using weapons that “go boom”;

• In Video Clip 4, the distinguished graduate of his ROTC program at the University of Nebraska-Omaha tells me about the early days of his relationship with the woman who would later accuse him of horrendous crimes;

• In Video Clip 5, Major Martin describes the beginning of the battle he’s now fighting with the same woman — the one he thought was his legal wife — and how it reached the boiling point soon after he was assigned to the vaunted 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky;

• In Video Clip 6, Major Martin describes what happened in his life after the woman he considered his legal wife went to the FBI and told agents he was an international spy.

Soldier Targeted by Pentagon Witch Hunt (Video Clip 2)

As a young officer, Christian “Kit” Martin received a “top of the line” officer evaluation from a lieutenant colonel who described him as having “unquestionable integrity.” The lieutenant colonel was Raymond T. Odierno., a man who would go on to earn four stars and serve as the highest-ranking officer in the Army. Martin’s career path followed a similar trajectory until he was accused of sexual assault. Now, after a career as an elite Army Ranger, master Army aviator and three-tour Iraq combat veteran, he’s scheduled to go on trial Dec. 1 at Fort Campbell, Ky., and face the possibility of 58 years in prison if convicted.

In the video clip above, I ask now-Major Martin, 47, how it felt to receive such high praise from a man who would go on to serve as chief of staff of the Army. It stands as a snippet of a more-serious conversation about his upcoming court-martial. For more details about that conversation, read this summary. When you do, I think you’ll understand this case is a result of political correctness running amok.

FYI: Please share the summary and updates as they surface. Time is of the essence!
